Calculate without a calculator


I discovered that google has a calculator builtin to its search field.

For example type 32/45=
into search field.

Answer is shown and you can go further with more operations.

I am using firefox on a windows 7 machine.
Google search is default.

I put 32/45=

in the search field

It loads the following site which has a calculator.
https://www.google.ca/search?q=32/4&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=B9XfWJmKE-eGjwST4quQAg

Hi don570,

You may be interested in the following thread which deals with using Google's calculation abilities
to provide voice control for any Pup.

The original pet was issued in Sept 2015 with the final V3 version in Feb 2016.

Subject description: Voice search
 

If you are using Chromium or Chrome and have a webcam mike, there is no need to type anything.
Simply click on the blue voice search microphone and ask the question:- examples:

20 divided by 4

or

6 times 3.1

In each case the calculator will display the answer which will also be spoken out aloud.
